$120/person

Professionals Fee:

$150/person

Presented by:

Jodi Mullen, Ph.D. LMHC CCPT-Master RPT-S

Description:

 

When play therapists and child mental health professionals take into account that the world of children is vastly different from that of adults we can better connect with them, understand their perspective, and make sense of their behavior. Aggression and aggressive behavior are just ways children are communicating to us about their inner model of how the world works, their experiences, and frequently their trauma. Unfortunately, aggression in childhood even in the therapeutic playroom, is often looked at through lenses of pathology and fear. In this webinar, we will focus on the unique opportunities children who demonstrate aggression provide in play therapy and counseling when our work is centered in viewing play, even aggressive play, as communication, understanding our counter transference and employing limit setting that facilitates prosocialness.

 

Objectives:

By the end of this webinar participants are able to:

1. Understand how limit setting can be used to help children make pro-social changes.

2. Challenge the typical ways aggressive behavior is viewed in children and their therapeutic play.

3. Identify the potential meanings of children’s aggressive play.

4. Identify how trauma and aggression are connected.

5. Describe how counter transference impacts the relationship with the child.
